Join the School Library Association’s Information Book Award team to discover what makes the best information book for your library or classroom, how to choose them and what to look out for. The Information Book Award demonstrates the wealth of fantastic fact books out there that can provide daily inspiration for your pupils. This event will give you loads of tips and practical advice on how to use them in your classrooms across the curriculum as well as for reading for pleasure.
Taking place on 28th September in Bath (at the Guildhall – Brunswick Room on the ground floor) between 4.30-6pm (though may run till 6.30pm to allow good discussion and question time), the session will be introduced by our Chair, Karen Horsfield, who is the manager of the Somerset SLS. There will be a session from Jane Walker, Macmillan Publishers, on the job of creating good information books from the publishers perspective, referencing their winner last year. We have Jayne Gould, a judge and Primary school librarian, to talk about using the books in school and Catherine Mackenzie, a judge and librarian at Peters Books and Furniture, on tips and hints for choosing good information books. Plus Ruth Thomson, author of one of our 2012 winners Terezin, talking about creating a good information book from the point of view of the author.
